Every year students at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in Florida view video footage of an actual abortion. It’s a routine part of their pro-life curriculum and has been thus far unchallenged by most. Until now…
Mother Dawn Jackson was furious to learn that her 15-year-old daughter took part in the class viewing the graphic abortion. "I couldn't even believe that they had shown her this without my permission."
Unfortunately, the national media picked up this story for only a few hours on December 21 and has since moved on, leaving the rest of us to wonder what will happen in this hot-button controversy. After extensively researching it, I have found nothing that indicates the girl’s family will take legal action. Regrettably, I don’t believe the media will be broadcasting much of this story, because it puts too much focus on the severe realities of abortion.
Tell me what you think… Would you allow your child to watch an abortion video at school? Do you feel your consent should be required for it?
